Artist Talk with Dianne Ballon 2:00 PM Patten Free Library , Bath Sound artist Dianne Ballon talks about her current installation at the Maine Maritime Museum, Lost and Found: Sounds of the Maine Coast.

Lost and Found is a collaboration between Dianne Ballon and Maine Maritime Museum that investigates the significant role of sound in maritime environments. The exhibition will encourage visitors to think critically about the soundscapes they encounter along Maine’s coast and how they contribute to them.

The exhibition will feature topics such as navigational warning systems from buoys to foghorns – both past and present. It will investigate the idea of ”lost” and “found” maritime sounds and invite visitors to reflect on how sound affects our individual and collective memory. It will be an interdisciplinary exploration of art, science, technology, and history. Audio samples in the exhibition include examples of Dianne’s field work and recordings of objects from the museum’s collection.

Dianne Ballon is a sound artist from Maine. She spent years as a visual artist before sound caught her ear. During semester breaks at Massachusetts College of Art, she volunteered in Appalachia. Listening to the rich story-telling tradition and music from the hills and hollows opened her ears to sound. She was awarded a Maine Artist Fellowship from the Maine Arts Commission. Ten of her sound works have aired on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. Currently, she teaches audio production online through Maine College of Art & Design, SALT Institute for Documentary Studies.
